3/12/19 – Coffee 4


Welcome to Five Course Trivia! Five days a week, we’ll post five questions about something from the culinary world, from soup to nuts and all dishes in between.

NOTE: This Thursday is Pi Day, and we’ll be having our fourth annual pie post on 5CT. If you have a fun pie question that you’d like to see make it to the website, feel free to send me a question at cking.gow@gmail.com, and if yours is chosen, I’ll put it on the site, citing you. Pie is great!

Hey everyone, and I hope your Tuesday is starting out well. We’ve got our food questions to take care of, so let’s go to the tape:

LearnedLeague precedent (LL80, MD7) – What is the name of the drink that consists of espresso with a very small amount of milk (the coffee is literally “spotted” or “stained” in Italian)? The Starbucks version of the drink is essentially the reverse of this — a latte where espresso is slowly poured over steamed milk (and very often topped with caramel sauce).

BOOM. All the way from June 2016.

I’m not saying I remember every question from summer 2016, but hot Starbucks drinks I am familiar with. I would post a photo of a macchiato I got near my building, but the Starbucks closest to me is shut down for the week. It was open when I got this question right.

We talked about Coffee three times back in 2016, but it certainly seems time to have our fourth sequel talking about coffee. Enjoy!
